Explanation:
roślina dwuletnia = biennial plant = plant requiring two years to complete its life cycle,

cover crop (rośliny okrywkowe wg Sł.N-T) = green temporary crop grown to prevent or reduce erosion and to improve the soil by building up its organic content. Green-manure crops are usually classed as cover crops. In orchards a cover crop is sometimes used to check the growth of some fruits when they reach maturity by supplying a plant that will compete with the tree for the nutriment in the soil. Cover crops are often the first means used to rehabilitate land that has become run down as the result of poor farming practices and neglect. Leguminous plants (e.g., clovers, vetches, and soybeans) and nonleguminous (e.g., rye, barley, wheat, and turnips) are used. See catch crop.

catch crop = any quick-growing crop sown between seasons of regular planting to make use of temporary idleness of the soil or to compensate for the failure of a main crop. It may be such rapid-maturing vegetables as radishes, onions grown from sets, or spinach (planted between rows of slower growing crops); quick-growing crops such as rye, millet, or buckwheat; or an annual legume, such as soybean, which is valuable as fodder or, when plowed under, increases the soil's fertility. See cover crop.

Poplon, rośliny uprawiane po zbiorze wczesnego plonu głównego (np. wczesnej kapusty). Poplon letni - wysiewany w lipcu, zbierany w jesieni (np. szpinak, fasola szparagowa, rzodkiewka). Poplon ozimy (międzyplon) - wysiewany w lipcu lub sierpniu, zbierany wiosną (np. wyka ozima z żytem, marchew, pietruszka). (WIEM)
międzyplon: (śródplon) intercrop, catch crop; (poplon) aftercrops (Czekierda – Sł.ekol. pol-ang)
